generally - is a lower mileage older model or a newer model with higher mileage a better buy?
I am looking to buy a used Honda Odessey EX or EX-L.
I am finding 2000-2004 models with around 100,000 - 120,000miles and then some more recent models (2006-2008) with 130,000-180,000 for around the same cost.
My use will be some local but more long distance. I am not versed in repairs/maintenance - but I do take my vehicles for service regularly.
This is a tough one. If your goal is long distance, I don't think either is an option. Why waste your time with a 100k 2000 Odyssey? And a newer 2006-2008 has done most of it's leg work already. I mean unless your budget is like 4k, I think the better buy is a combination of lower miles and newer model car. I never buy new cars simply b/c the value of the car diminishes significantly after you drive it off the lot, but I also don't buy used cars on their last legs. I think both of these options are just that.
